iEp-2280: JOSEPH WHITE & SON  Spring Detent Chronometer

(Published date: 08/10/22)

A precision pocket watch featuring a Spring Detent Chronometer by the watchmaker "JOSEPH WHITE & SON," based in Coventry, West Midlands, England:

The movement, manufactured around 1880, was cased in 1907, as determined by the hallmark, a common practice during that time. The delay in casing was typical, as movements were often sold separately by jewelers, and customers would later commission a custom case after purchase.

Traditional gilt-finished movement with a fusee chain drive.

Breguet-style winding detent with a free-sprung balance.

Temperature-compensated cut balance with a gold mean time screw.

Diamond pallet fork stone.

This high-end timepiece adheres to traditional style, crafted with meticulous attention to detail:

Presented in a specially weighty silver case (total weight 212g) and includes the original wooden box.

Impeccable quality and condition both internally and externally.

A desk watch of high precision and quality, recommended for those seeking traditional craftsmanship.

Delivery is guaranteed with practical accuracy within 5 seconds (in a fixed, flat position).
